Register with the surgery online
We are using a new online service called Register with a GP surgery that makes it easy to register at the practice.
Just fill in the quick online form to start the process. You do not need proof of address or immigration status, ID or an NHS number.
The service is designed and run by the NHS, so your personal information is safe. It cuts our administrative workload and makes it easier for you to register.
Register with the surgery in person
We are happy to register new patients. You must live within the practice area. To check if your address is within our practice area, go to the Practice Area tab, click where indicated and a map will appear — enter your postcode and click on “check if your postcode is in catchment area” and a message will show to say if you are in the area or not.
At the time of registation we ask you, and any other family members who may also be registering, to provide details of your past medical problems and to book a new patient health check with our health care support worker or one of our practice nurses. If you are on repeat medication you will need to see a doctor before we can issue your prescription.

Remember that records from your previous practice can take up to three months to arrive with us.
If you move outside of the practice area we are not able to continue to provide you with medical care and you will need to re-register with a practice local to your new address.
Visitors and temporary residents
If you are in the area for a short time and require medical treatment you are allowed to register with this practice as a temporary resident. This gives you the same access to general medical services as registered patients but either for a period of 24 hours up to 15 days, or between 15 days and three months.
If you are going to be in the area for longer than three months you should register fully with a GP.
If you are registered with another practice locally it is essential that you attend your own practice where your medical notes are available.
People from abroad are eligible for free treatment on the NHS in the case of an emergency. Broadly, this means that if, in the opinion of the GP, your condition requires emergency treatment you will not be charged for a consultation with a GP.
If you require treatment or medication for a pre-existing condition and you are not a citizen of the European Union you will be charged a fee, which then should be claimed back via your insurance company.
